How to Find the Perfect Toy for Your Kid

A Step-by-Step Guide

How many times have you stood in front of a toy store, trying to figure out what to buy your little ones? If this happens more often than you would like, it may be time for a change. Buying the perfect gift can sometimes seem impossible because there are so many options and not all children are alike. This is why we have created this list of steps that will help you find the perfect toy for your kid!

-Know what your kid likes. Children grow and change so it is important to know exactly how old they are, the gender, their interests, etcetera in order to buy them something that will be worthwhile both now and later on when they get a little older.


-Check for safety features/warnings labels before buying anything at all. Some toys come with warnings about certain age ranges or warning labels from organizations such as the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM), Federal Drug Administration (FDA) or Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This gives you some peace of mind knowing that if there is any doubt in regards to potential dangers while playing with this toy, then chances are good that someone has done their part of the job.

-Look for toys that seem to last. This could be a toy with the ability to grow with your kid or one that will allow them to use their imagination in ways no other toy can.

-Find something they’ll have fun playing on their own and also allows for two people at once, so you are free to do whatever you need during this time period while still keeping an eye on what they’re doing without feeling like you should be more involved than normal. If it’s not cooperative then just find another option!
